Ah! We have finally arrived in the iconic Greek Island of Mykonos. Known for the crazy winds here we were treated with hazy skies and no wind. Go figure! After a smooth ferry ride with pit stops in Syros and Tinos we arrived in Paradise -Paradise Beach to be exact.

There has been a shift in the mood, from historical immersion to sun and sand. The students are excited and ready. After a few hours of chilling of the beach we headed back into the town for a walking tour that included a stop at the iconic windmills. It was early evening as we wound our way through the labyrinth of streets, alleys and shops. Houses are decorated in the Cyclades white, most freshly painted for the season. The town Evan has an already called Little Venice where all the shops are built in the water. Rather than bore you with details, enjoy our photos. We are headed back to town today so we will post more later. enjoy!
